Daniel Hernandez — the controversial rapper also known as Tekashi, or 6ix9ine — is starring in a commercial for a chain of sex toy shops airing in the New York metropolitan area.
The ad is part of the “dignity and respect” campaign run by Romantic Depot, the store brand, meant to prevent violence against women. It’s airing at a time when Hernandez’s girlfriend of seven years, Sara Molina, accused him of repeatedly beating her.
“When I was young, I used to make a lot of stupid mistakes. Now I’m ready to learn more,” Hernandez says in the commercial. “Thanks, Romantic Depot. I now know how to treat women with dignity and respect.”
